Quirky perceptions


Instruct your brain to let your eyeballs roam, and very soon this escheresque shape will rotate at will, forwards and backwards. No caffeine. No cocaine. No cannabis. It is high up on a wall, overlooking the MLC Tower food court, just off Martin Place.
This is my contribution to the Monday Mural community.

Good shot and conversion of this, can be difficult to get enough contrast.

Jim said...

I've had trouble shooting this one.

Buck said...

A very unusual piece. Escheresque is the perfect word.

Shifting perception is such an interesting phenomenon. You're right, Escher capitalized on this. The Linky is finally up and working. Thanks for participating in this week's Monday Mural.

This is just fabulous Julie and as you say, just take a little bit of time to be entranced with the changes.

strange for me

I'd probably need to be sipping on caffeine at close range to ponder on this one...

Joe said...

Now that's clever. I'll bet the measurements had to be perfect for this to work. The again it doesn't take much to trick my brain.

Andy said...

Nice shot. Every time I looked at it my eyes saw something different.

Julie said...

Yes, my eyes, too, Andy.

I am not sure I can look at it long enough to get it to move...but I love the perspective on it!

VioletSky said...

it's funny, I kept looking at this and only seeing one thing... then suddenly my eye hit a sweet spot and it all shifted! I love these escher designs, but sometimes it take me awhile!

That's such fun!

What a fun idea for a mural, makes you think and go hmmm. Great shot.

Love the way your eyes can shift between one perspective and another. Reminds me of the double young woman/old woman face!

There you go again ... seeing things I have missed. I like the way the lines look perfectly perpendicular one minute then on a lean the next.
